This is the second time we stayed at the Hotel DECA in the U District. We stayed there over Labor Day weekend and we were immediately upgraded to the one of the best views of Mt. Rainier looking Southeast through Lake Washington. Believe me it doesn't get any better than this view. In addition to be being on the...I believe 13th or 14th floor we had an oversize room that was decorated like a 4+ Star Hotel should be. We just re-booked the Hotel for the Wedding of a good friend of ours, Sonny Sixkiller's son, Tyson. Again we were moved up to a great view on the 14th floor, but it was raining, so we didn't get to see Mt. Rainier but the Lake Washington view was again... spectacular. I remarked to my wife that although the room was smaller than last time, I would take this view over any bigger 4 or 5 Star Hotel downtown that just looked at another office skyscraper. My wife of many years, and also a seasoned traveler of 20+ countries and many 4+ Star Hotels in the USA, was concerned about other comments online that said you could hear the room next door. We never heard anything on either stay and surmised that these comments must be from competitor hotels. The only noise I heard was the moaning of some pretty happy customers in the room next to the Ice Machine on the 15th Floor;-) The staff is exceptional, especially Alex at the reception desk, and the Bartender in the Hotel Bar kept the bar open beyond the Hotel hours on our first visit just because we were there. That is class....all the way. So was this just a fluke one or two time visit? I don't think so...and we would go back there anytime we visit Seattle. This Hotel "Kicks Butt" at a very reasonable price, but I probably just killed any chance of getting those discounted rates online again with this review...oh, well;-)
